Dear Olive, 

I read an article several years ago about a famous architect whose parents refused to buy him toys as a child.  Instead they bought him any materials he requested and insisted that he make his own toys.  The kids were clammering about buying a new stuffed animal and; using the above practice, we made our own instead.

They really got into choosing their colors and stitching the creatures.

We drew and cut the dogs.  This was a first sewing experience for all.

They've been carrying their pets around all day.  

This is my first step to my dream of increased child labor in our household.
